Looks awesome drew. I consider my bomber a lifetime piece, as long as I don't get fat.

I'm hoping for a lighter weight S/S Varsity. Would be all I could rock out of this line, I think


Beautiful though

These prices are set for awhile, unless the forex takes a very sizable dip on us, so subject to notice, but expect them to stay around the same range.

I never really figured out why the price jumps. Unless it's just bigger margin which would be totally justifiable since it's still a fair bit below what it should cost for these things. Those shots of the chesterfield are drool-worthy.

^^ RiRi, Lampo etc. aren't necessarily of higher quality than YKK zippers. YKK makes all kinds of zippers - from cheap/lightweight to non-cheap/heavy...

Yeah, Riri's have run out. There may be a couple more left in black but apart from that, we're just YKK Japan again. I like their performance/put together looks and they're my local offering, basically. You guys needn't worry about zippers because the differences are very minute and the effort to configurate them is huge, so we don't offer any kind of customization or choices when it comes to zippers, except when we can offer different colors (i.e. the blacked zippers as opposed to gunmetal, etc)... offering different brands of zippers, etc, is not viable.
